Scandinavian Biogas Fuels International (STO:BIOGAS) has tapped Swedish energy and infrastructure consultancy AFRY (STO:AFRY) as a detail engineering partner for its planned 120-GWh Monsteras biogas production plant in Sweden.
AFRY, which was involved in the early project development stages, will now provide health and safety consulting, project risk management and document management, among other services, the company said in a press release earlier in March.
The value of assignment remained undisclosed.
Scandinavian Biogas, a Nordic producer of biogas for vehicle fuel and fertilisers, will invest about SEK 760 million (USD 73.4m/EUR 68.1m) to build the new plant in Monsteras, southern Sweden.
The facility, which targets commissioning in the fourth quarter of 2024, will convert manure from beef, pig, chicken and egg production into liquid biogas (LBG) and various types of refined biofertiliser.
The Mönsterås site is expected to produce 120 GWh of liquefied biogas which is equal to about 12 million litres of diesel. It will also generate 200,000 tons of biofertiliser to be returned to the farmers.
The project development was started in 2016 by local farmers with Scandinavian Biogas joining it in 2018. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's programme Klimatklivet at the end of 2021 granted the company SEK-154-million investment support for the project.
